You have to be a guest of someone attending the Ball. My friend came with us this year, and she is listed as (My husband)'s guest. Her actions, had they been inappropriate, would have reflected badly on him. That is why they call it sponsoring. 

Quoting gertrude_shea:

He is actually "retired"...and what do you mean by sponsered?


Quoting usmclife58:

Is he actually "retired" or just out of service? Either way, he would have to be "sponsored" by an AD Marine. You can't just buy tickets and go.

Quoting gertrude_shea:

This may sound like a stupid question...but at the risk of looking stupid im going to ask...are retired service members welcomed? My DH is retired and was when we got together but i have always wanted to go to one of these balls since hearing him talk about them

Me too! I've always thought they just looked the best dressed in their dres uniforms! And I'm not just saying that because my husband is a Marine.
